A 37-year-old man who took a gunshot wound to the head is incredibly lucky to have escaped with minor injuries. Tegan Robbins, of Sandy, was sitting in the driver's seat of a parked car at an apartment complex Sunday evening when he was shot. A couple of South Salt Lake police officers just happened to be at the complex at the time of the shooting on another call, when they heard multiple shots being fired, followed the sound of several vehicles speeding away.
Robbins was grazed and received a "superficial gunshot head wound," according to officials with South Salt Lake police. He was taken to a local hospital and stayed overnight, but was in good enough condition that it was believed he could be released Monday afternoon.
Investigators do not suspect the shooting was random, although Robbins claims he is unsure as to who exactly fired at him. Drug paraphernalia was located in the area of Robbins vehicle, and police say there was a loud argument prior to the shooting. No arrests have been made of yet, and the investigation remains ongoing.
Anyone with information on the shooting can call police at 801-840-4000.
